Most people know at least one person who is an avid spicy food lover. Maybe they have multiple bottles of hot sauce in their cupboards. Maybe they bring a bottle Sriracha with them to Thanksgiving. Those who do rely on the spice of Sriracha might want to stock up on their favorite sauce now, since the business behind it is facing legal trouble.
Maybe everyone doesn't know what their state flower, bird or tree is. Even for those who are not avid wildlife lovers and enthusiasts, they still live off of the land and enjoy the gifts it provides. They just might not be mindful of that.
People will file environmental lawsuits for various reasons. Sometimes the matter is more about money, in matters of land value, real estate, etc. Sometimes the matter is much for serious and sensitive, like when damage to the environment or improper land use get people sick, sometimes fatally so.
Thankfully, more and more people are growing up to understand the importance and value of nature. The lessons of environmental appreciation are starting at a young age. A group of students at a Georgia elementary school, for example, have taken pride in beginning their own garden.
Environmental laws exist, are modified and created for a reason. People want to live in communities that are not only beautiful and safe, but they want to live in a world that supports good health.
